Cursive writing and the Living Alphabet are movements promoting unity. In quality handwriting, harmonizing movements include unifying mind and heart, intellect and intuition, willpower and authentic love, mind and body, heaven and earth, mind, body and spirit. The synthesis of all these unifying and harmonizing movements results in inner strength, peace of mind and emotional serenity.
The alphabet letter that is the channel for unity is the letter “Uu.” This letter, active in the world today, encourages families, communities, and nations to focus on teamwork in which each member has an important part to contribute for the benefit of the whole.
The archetype of the letter “Uu” teaches that teamwork begins within each individual. The cup-shaped “Uu” is a symbol reminding you that contrasts, such as will power/love-wisdom, intellect/intuition, and mental/emotional are to be unified within each person and out-pictured as internal harmony.
The interior of the “Uu”-shaped cup represents love. It is the motivating quality that prompts all expressions of unity. This desirable heart quality moves you to reach out to others indicated by the extended forward movement of the letter “Uu.” The forward movement resembles the hand connecting to others with the spirit of unity. The archetype of the letter “Uu” explains that the unity attained by each individual is the foundation for world and universal friendship. It is only through world unity and friendship that we can progress in accordance with the higher plan for the earth.
A leading role of education is to demonstrate the power of teamwork and friendship in the learning experiences. The letter “Uu” encourages interactive sharing of knowledge and insights that are attained through intuition, inspiration, along with practical and abstract mental processes. The archetype of the letter “Uu” reminds educators to share with the students how the ideals of friendship and unity have maintained cultures throughout time.
Friendship and unity are the bonding powers that maintain the cycles and rhythms of the earth. Honoring the earth and unifying with her spirit establishes a harmonious link to all the creatures, plant life and geology.
The key qualities of the letter “Uu” that will transform challenging choices made by individuals are teamwork, cooperation, and compassion. These are the attributes of the heart that will describe the progressive spirit of the 21st century and beyond.
